What do players talk about in the huddle? Why did the coach choose pass instead of run? What plays are reviewable? After Further Review answers these questions and hundreds more. From coin toss to conclusion, learn the game's tactics, formations and terms. Understand the history that shaped it. And gain new appreciation for its oft-overlooked nuances--all from an expert who has spent his life on the sidelines and in the press box.

The book is easy to understand, spelling out technical aspects of the game in a way that both the beginner and experienced spectator will appreciate. After Further Review is organized in chapters in order of how the action happens in the game: offense, defense, and kicking situations. There are descriptions of qualifications and responsibilities required for each player's position on offense and defense. Humorous quotes and anecdotes are sprinkled throughout the book, highlighting important features of the game. Included are chapters on mistakes coaches and players make in playing football and those that fans make viewing the game.

The final chapter is a "game plan" for spectators, featuring play-by-play strategies for watching and discovering the interesting action that takes place away from the ball carriers, throwers and catchers--action often overlooked by commentators. There is also a comprehensive glossary of terms and situations, making the book an excellent reference for fans who want to get the most out of their football viewing experience, at home or at the stadium. The book is aimed at rookie fans, experienced enthusiasts and those who might be too embarassed to ask questions.
